Getting an IPOverhaul
The Asiaweek/CNN Internet Index expands to 40 companies, while the Asian tech stock skid continues

Asia's Internet IPO boom is over and a certain stability prevails. Not for share prices. They appear headed inexorably for the basement. But initial public stock offerings have trailed off and the expansion of Asia's tech-stock universe has slowed — a good time to revamp the Asiaweek/CNN Internet Index. We're doubling to 40 the number of companies comprising the index to better reflect the growth in the region's Internet sector since our monitor was launched in June 1999.

Gone from the ranks are mini-dotcoms such as Australia's Travel.com. We've loaded up on companies that lend the index more geographic and sectoral breadth, players such as mobile Internet pioneer NTT DoCoMo. We don't expect the changes to reverse the slide in the index, which has lost more than half its value since February. The anti-tech trend in global stock markets shows no sign of abating.
